Elder Snow's comments are correct in that we are not that many generations since the first settlers of Utah. In fact, my grandfather was born in 1867 and was 10 years old when Brigham Young died. My own father who is today age 94, was born in 1918, when Joseph F. Smith was Church President. Joseph F. was age 5 when he saw his dad Hyrum and his uncle Joseph ride out of Nauvoo one last time in 1844. So there are people alive today, who were alive when someone who knew Joseph Smith were alive!
